On Writing, Ideas, and Making a Difference

The In-Between is Making Waves: Guest Posts, Interviews, Reflections, & More!

My new book, The In-Between, has been out a month and has already started receiving rave reviews. I’m both excited and a little nervous to hear how it’s connecting with readers. So far, so good (over 100 4- and 5-star reviews on Amazon!).

The In-Between

The In-Between by Jeff Goins (that’s me!)

Here are a few recent reviews:

Sometimes we focus on the next big thing in our lives that we often miss the best moments which are right in front of us. I know I am guilty of this, which is why this book deeply resonates with me. I definitely wrestle with the in-between moments in my life.

—Pilar

In his book, Jeff inspires us all to see our personal waiting periods in a new light. No matter your age or season of life, there are things you have to wait for. The In-Between takes us on a journey through various seasons of Jeff’s life, including his mission travels, meeting his wife, and becoming a father. So much wisdom packed in such a young man. Through his own life lessons, Jeff encourages us to slow down, let go, and be grateful.

What a great perspective and set of lessons from this bright young writer. And I wish I had known about the In-Between when I was in my 20’s. I am 60 now, and learned some of this myself along the way, but whatever your age, you will find refreshment and companionship as you walk through Jeff’s words. What I know now, as I enter the best years, is that there are many such In-Between periods in life, and they are times to savor, not stew, and as you live in and for the moment, you fill up and become fulfilled, better able to ride and enjoy the next wave. Thanks Jeff, for stepping out and pursuing your gift. Can’t wait for the next book that is brewing.

This book is set at a slower pace from that of my previous work, Wrecked, so it’s interesting to see the impact it’s having.

Stories tend to work more slowly but also more deeply into the hearts of readers, which was why I decided to write the book as a memoir. I wanted to make a point using story, and the message required me to think more creatively than a typical nonfiction advice book.

So I want to share with you some more thoughts from yours truly as well as some fascinating reflections and reviews from readers (including one in Albanian!).

Here is a collection of guest posts, interviews, and reviews of the book, as well as some unique explanations of what it means to embrace the wait and live in the in-between. Enjoy!
